I'm just going Boston Celtics because I'm going to hope my team wins and continues the trend of never seeing a game 6 when up 3-0 in a series. I'll be scared shitless if we have to see a Game 6, even if it's in Boston.

I take comfort in knowing the Celtics executed VERY poorly throughout the entire Game 4 and still nearly won.

I hope we win. I have a feeling in my gut that last night was some false hope though.


Vince needs to show up. If he doesn't, we won't win. That's what I know for sure was an aberration last night...us winning when Vince scores 3 points.

But like last night, no prediction here.

I say boston because a couple years ago i invested in a "We Beat LA" t-shirt and i wish to wear it again with relevance. Honestly magic fans, Dwight is one of my favourite players in the game today, but as it looks now, Boston will most likely win this next game and deserves all the R-E-S-P-E-C-T that is due. As Aretha Franklin would say, "It's just a little bit, Just a little bit"...... too late.

I believe the Magic will win. I won't say in a blowout but a 1 pt win is fine with me. It has been said that if we win the 1st quarter, I definitely belive we will win. Everyone needs to attack the lane and let our shooters and Dwight get going early. Paul Pierce can not get going like he has lately. I know the fouls that are being called are, well, "ticky tack" and this is how he gets going. Coming off screens and throwing his arms up as though someone punched him out- This is the BS that I hate. And even on his pump fakes, no one touches him and they call a foul. Nonetheless, this will not help Boston tonight.

I have no idea how this game is going to go. The Celtics were the better team without question in the first three games, then Game 4 we started seeing some open shots. I think just naturally a team that is up 3-0 will let it's foot off the gas a bit. Whether that was the whole story to game 4 or not we are about to find out. I do think if we manage to win this game there will be a tremendous amount of pressure on Boston going into game 6.

Micheal Wilbon said that if the Magic don't win the series, SVG might be fired, I wonder how true that is.


“I’m not one of those guys who likes to pound on Stan Van Gundy. I thought he got completely hosed in Miami. … I think there are things that Stan does very well. I think he was sabotaged in this case by the trading — not the trading but the letting go to free agency — of his best offensive player (Hedo Turkoglu) … I think that Stan probably will be fired (if Magic lose to Celtics). I don’t know how you fire him. I really don’t … I’ve already heard the rumblings that he will be fired if they don’t win this series.”

The Magic have only been blown out of 1 of the games. But have not put a good game together yet. If the Magic continue to do something other than what the Celtics game planned for ( guard the 3 point line & foul dwight before ha makes a shot) there is a chance for victory.

Keys to victory:
1) Play Bass. He matches up & nullifies big baby. He is energetic, which we need to get fired up.
2) Don't be afraid to sit Lewis. If he has a viral infection and is not contributing, let him cheer form the bench.
3) Run, Run, and run some more. We can't stay still. There team is older and the best way to soften a defense is to make them play tired defense.
4) Drive and kick. Pick and roll. This is the way to collapse the defense from guarding the 3 point line and also get Dwight easy buckets.
5) Finally make the extra pass. And play inspired defense.

Hubie would be a great teacher to Dwight and Jameer if he were to come to Orlando and coach again.

Anyways, I think this will be a close game throughout, just like game 5 w/ the Magic winning in the last 2 minutes.

ManRam
05-26-2010, 09:02 PM
Our ball movement is back to the level it was in the first two rounds (our peak of the season). When we pass like that, our offense is that much better.

And JJ is a man. He never isn't attacking or hustling.

ManRam
05-26-2010, 09:07 PM
I've been saying it all along. When we were forcing it into Dwight, and not running our offense like we did all year (ie pick-and-rolls and perimeter-based attacking), our entire offense stagnates. But when we attack and create through our perimeter players, and get Dwight involved in creative ways, we are a MUCH better team. The Magic offense in the first 3 games wasn't the Magic offense I've seen all year. Credit the Celtics' defense...but a lot of it was self-inflicted.

Much better ball movement and perimeter attacking tonight.

TheKing23

Bad play by JJ...

Tragedy
05-26-2010, 09:12 PM
Nice job to get that 3 point play before the 1st ended. I also found a couple of the fouls hilarious; Mainly the two on Baby. There's not a single person alive that could say either were actual fouls - The first, Baby was literally planted, and Howard mowed him down, and that's a foul on Baby? The second, the ball went back into play and Baby grabbed it, and the other guy was grabbing Baby's arm, while Baby was entirely going for the basketball.

It's reasons like these that I remember why it's impossible for me to fall back in love with basketball.

And these commentators are just awfuuuuuuuuuul. Jackson is a complete moron.

ManRam
05-26-2010, 09:15 PM

I swear there is never a possession JJ has that doesn't involve him attacking. He is always getting into the paint it seems like. Such an underrated player.

It all boils down to ball movement. We had none in the first three games. All it was was forcing it to Dwight. We come out in games 4 and 5, and we start playing Magic basketball.

I'm loving it.

it was like 5 or 10 real time minutes, not off the clock, between the T's...if the guy can't remember that maybe he shouldn't be a ref? Is that the caliber of the NBA human resources department, they hire bums.

Also, I wouldn't wan't to complain if the Celtics lose this game because of this ejection. However, it was such a bad call it will be in the discussion...and if it hadn't had happened it wouldn't have taken away from the Magic, should they win this game...but it will.

Where was the substance in that? I know my team is losing the game...Even before Perk was out of the game. I never used it as an excuse. It's no big deal; All of the Orlando fans were quieted after losing both games at home, and now suddenly they've gotten their mouths back. We've still got two chances AFTER tonight (if we do end up losing) to finish this thing off. We're not the Bruins.

i said. its too bad that will be the excuse IF you lose, cuz we had been playing so well.

Why in the world would I want to watch a Yankee game?

Toughest game in the world to ref...LOL. Give me a break. The refs see any type of body movement and it's a foul. I can call fouls all days as well. Seriously. What those refs in the NFL do is far prettier. NBA is just to the hilarious level with their 'poor decisions'.

The NFL has a lot more rigid rules, and they have refs dedicated to different positioned players. That's probably the 2nd toughest, and it's not even close.

I'm all for letting them play more, trust me. But to say they're biased and trying to get the Magic to win this game is ridiculous.

And I don't care that 'Sheed had 1 more tech than Perkins this season, the point is that he's regularly among the most T'd in the league and has a horrible reputation with the refs, hence his non-existent leash.

Still a completely pathetic call, but not as pathetic as your conspiracy theory idea.


Anyway, back to the game --

hopefully we can pull together and end the series now

just a side note. altho perks tech will be rescinded. he still has 6, and will likely get suspended eventually right?

im not sure if those numbers start over again in the finals or next round. cause if they dont. should the celtics advance i can see him being suspended for a finals game easily. he complains on every call

not really, even though he should have been booted earlier. But put yourself in the refs shoes. WOuld you not be sick of his antics? When KG is calmer and less of an instigator than you, you are an a-hole. He needs an attitude adjustment, and he may have just gotten one
For what? Arguing? If that's the case, then Dwight should be ejected from every single game.

Yeah, it's amazing that we were able to beat them in game 1 and 2, blow them out in game 3. In game 4, it took our awful play AND overtime for them to finally beat us. That's pretty damn impressive in itself. And again, here in game 5, they're going off the hook shooting, we've played a pretty mediocre game, and we're STILL not out of the game (though I'm not feeling a win tonight).

I'm impressed. I thought this was suppose to be a blowout, like 4-0 or 4-1 for Orlando en route to their Finals appearance. I guess it's a bit more difficult.

LOL at ur sig. Anyone who thinks Wilt is better than Russel is an idiot. Wilt always came up small in big games.

More ratings, more revenue. No surprise that he'd make sure all of these series goes at least 6 games. Got to love it.
